Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Drinkin' Wine
Barry, thanks for the info. From Bruce Jackson's book Wake Up Dead Man (Harvard UP, pp. 245-248; with music)[titled "Drinkin' That Wine"], I knew Lydia Parrish also recorded this song, which is in her Slave Songs of the Georgia Sea Islands (1942; Univ. of Georgia Press, 1992, pp. 249-251; without music)["Drinkin' of the Wine"]. The Walter Kegler version ["Drinking the Wine"] is "the most popular sacred song adapted for menhadden chantying".
